Freedom of speech or fuelling hatred?

Poking fun at religion is nothing new in France, but when a satirical weekly publishes new cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, the furore goes global. François Picard’s panel argues over whether the cartoons constitute a stand for free speech, a cheap publicity stunt or incitement to hatred?

  • Ammar ABD RABBO. Photojournalist;
  • Radu STOENESCU. Staff member, "Riposte Laïque";
  • Fady FADEL. Dean of the American Business School of Paris;
  • Tariq RAMADAN. Professor of Islamic studies, Saint Anthony's College, Oxford. Author of "Islam and the Arab Awakening".

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Wassim Nasr.
